Brian Williams – I could use a little help here
Dear Mr. Williams,
Every year I give $100 to UNICEF – you know, the Children’s Project of the United Nations. I was not that generous as a child, but I did carry my donation box from door to door as I “trick or treated” and I remember one year having nearly $20 in my box.
The truth be told, my Mother made me put in 5 cents every time I said what she considered to be a impolite word, and without ever saying any of the BIG four, I had contributed well.
Last year only 3 children came to my door with donation boxes, so I mailed off the check.
This year I do not have $100 for UNICEF. Because I think it is an important program, I decided that I must be creative to get that money sent. I think many, many other people will be having trouble making a donation this year too.
Children still need food and supplies no matter our circumstance.
I am writing an e-book Cookbook. I have no big name contributors of recipes, just my book group, neighbors, and my on- line community. I thought I would make this cookbook full of recipes of food love – you know those real food dishes that one just loves to make and eat.
I have just finished reading Michael Pollan’s book In Defense of Food and he is very concerned that folks just eat efficiently and not very often with LOVE in mind.
I would love to add a recipe of FOOD LOVE from you to the book. Would you consider sending me a recipe by November 1, 2009? I will make the food and take a picture if you do not have time?
The e-book will be offered on my Blog – Patricia’s Wisdom – as soon as I get all the entries collated and edited for a $3-$5 donation.
At the very least, could this Children’s Fund raiser get some attention this coming season, because lots of folks need a reminder and to know that Children are funding this project and not the BIG GUYS, who get lots of good words and press. Children Helping Children – this is a good thing.
Thank you for your considerations,

Dear Jon Stewart,
Dear Michael Pollan,
Dear Bill Moyer,
You get the idea…..which celebrity or wonderful cook do you know who could give a shout out and maybe a recipe to our e-book?
Time is running out – better do it right now! Thank you!
